Nothing but healthy biscuits

I posted earlier this week with some of the so called superfoods my family eat regularly here. This is a biscuit recipe that I concocted while I was competing professionally and I still make most weeks. It is supercharged with what ever I have in the cupboard with minimal sugar and trans fats. Great for quick snacks to keep us going. This is how you can make them.



  •     2 cups natural muesli 
  •     1/4 cup oat bran
  •     2 tbs sesame seeds
  •     1/2 cup almond meal
  •     1 cup shredded coconut
  •     1/4 cup rice malt syrup
  •     2 tbs wheatgerm
  •     1 tsp cinnamon
  •     2 tbs golden syrup
  •     3/4 cup water
1.  Preheat oven to 180 degrees, line a baking tray with foil (sprayed with canola) or baking paper

2.  In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients

3.  Add the golden syrup to a saucepan and add water, gently heat until bubbles form, stirring continuously, take off heat and add to dry ingredients. (Just add a little more water if not sticking, I find that each different muesli absorbs different amounts).

4.  Place on baking tray and bake for 30-40 mins until golden 

5.  Great to freeze or keep in container in fridge.

Ps these photos are really bad, I promise to start knowing my camera a little better!
Do you have a favourite healthy biscuit recipe or good old stock standard one you routinely cook?

    Well it isn’t totally healthy but I quite often make this It has no added fat (besides what’s in the milk) and although it’s a little high on sugar that can easily be reduced and the white flour replaced with wholemeal. I reduce the amount of cloves for personal taste. Lately i’ve been adding two eggs to up the protein (and reducing the milk to make the same quantity) as well as adding chopped organic dates (or raisins) and walnuts. Very yummy, especially when it’s warm (and you can add a ‘scraping’ of butter as a real treat).

    wow, these are healthy! and sound great!

  • Ironmum Karla

    Yes they are just through trial and error I guess, you can add dates, figs, sultanas anything you have in the pantry.
    Lin – your ontbijtkoek sounds yummy, and good on you for altering it so it is healthy! I will have to also try.

    Amy – as healthy as can be and guilt free!

    Your welcome Chantelle, it is the first time I have actually measured it out but I think you get the gist of how to make. Basically just throw in as much dried fruit as you like!x
